Anish Kapoor: Turning the World Upside Down

[IN PICTURES] Sculptor Anish Kapoor unveils his latest works in Kensington Gardens, London

As part of the Serpentine Gallery’s 40th anniversary exhibition programme the London-based artist, Anish Kapoor, today unveils his series of large-scale reflective sculptures across Kensington Gardens. These giant curved mirror surfaces offer a new way of seeing this parkscape.

The surroundings are their substance, and the exhibition will trace changes in scenery from autumn through until spring; the changing colours of foliage, the weather and the wildlife.

The 10 metre diameter Sky Mirror (2009) is the first of Kapoor’s works ever to be placed in water, and like the other three it combines a contemporary surface with an imposing form.

Anish Kapoor has exhibited extensively in London and worldwide. His solo shows have included Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2009; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, 2008; Haus der Kunst, Munich, 2007; Kunsthaus Bregenz, 2003; Hayward Gallery, London, 1998 and Tate Gallery, London, 1990.

Kensington Gardens; 28 September 2010 - 13 March 2011; admission free.
